GD is the chassis code for Fits/Jazzs made from 2001-2008; which is the year range your Jazz falls into, so they should work. However, you may need additional hardware to use those lights such as a ballast. Also, the wheels will work with those dimensions and offset. As for warranty, I honestly wouldn't know because every dealer has a different tolerance; I do know that the LEDs and the aftermarket speakers will raise an eyebrow and could be falsely accused for causing a malfunction if one where to happen.

Sorry for the delayed response, I was cramming in homework that is due in less that 12 hours.

But back on topic, you'll find some detailed information about ballast at the links below.

The headlights came from the factory color matched and I'm glad that you had mentioned them.

I just remembered that the majority of GD Fits/Jazzs produced all have the shorter JDM or EDM front end and that for the JDM (Japanese spec) 1.5S Fit it was optional to have H.I.D. lights. So if my memory and theory is correct, your Australian spec Jazz could use the JDM 1.5S headlights and you may also be able to find a set that are color matched. If this does work out you would not have to worry about the lights not being on warranty for not being a Honda part.

Thanks for the complement. My USDM Fit Sport, along with the other North American Sports, came from the factory with the fog lights installed and the only ones that don't come with fogs are the trim levels below it. Now there are some vendors on here for A&J's Racing that may be able to find you the headlights if your dealer can't get them for you.

Here is the link to their profiles here: AJR Jay & AJ PwR Jr.
